Nathan MacKinnon’s OT goal gives Avalanche 4-3 win over Red Wings
DENVER -- Nathan MacKinnon wiped away a season's worth of overtime frustration with a goal that was critical to Colorado's playoff push. MacKinnon scored 2:29 into OT and also had an assist to help the Avalanche rally past the skidding Detroit Red Wings 4-3 on Tuesday night. His 34th goal of the season gave Colorado two valuable points in the Western Conference wild-card chase. The Avalanche kept pace with Dallas and gained a point on Minnesota, which lost in a shootout at Nashville.
